Bash Modern
Funky, refurbished furniture from the '50s

Atlanta

Somehow not a museum devoted to the hard-hitting Mighty Ducks "Brothers", ATL's own Bash Modern is a collection of classic house pieces created by legendary designers from the '50s, which have been found in various states of disrepair and restored to their former glory.

Bash's owner says he can find most anything you want (find that He-Man character that smelled like a skunk, owner!) from estate sales, thrift stores, and private collectors, but loves restoring rare stuff like a super-linear teak coffee table by famed Danish designer Jens Risom, a 93yr-old legend who reads Playboy just for the articles about himself (July 1961!), and made an executive chair for LBJ's Oval Office.

Another winner's the Eames shell chair, which has a solid bowling ball-esque fiberglass seat that sits on a ski-like rocking base. It's not to be confused with similar-looking, modern-day knockoffs made of cast plastic, although that will definitely remain the motto of the talent scout for the Kardashians.

Owner Joel also has his own designs, including slide-opening reclaimed barn doors, and he just released the first two of 10 pieces from his HiFi collection of restored table audio systems with record players and built-in speakers, which he's further modernized with iPod and iPad docks, so you can play "We Are the Champions" while you drink some Bombay.
